We all have lines on our faces when expressing ourselves, and it makes each of us unique! Our facial expressions allow us to communicate with others to show a variety of emotions. But S. Thetics Med Spa of Lawrence understands that sometimes deeper lines on the face can decrease your confidence level. That’s why we are now a select provider of the designer RHA® fillers in Lawrence, Kansas!
This new dermal filler has a lot of exciting features, and we’re here to explain them to you every step of the way.
What are RHA® Fillers?
RHA stands for Resilient Hyaluronic Acid. This exclusive collection of dermal filler is designed to adapt to facial movements, which may achieve a more natural look when the face is at rest or in motion. It uses a gentle manufacturing process that creates hyaluronic acid that closely resembles the natural HA found in your skin! The results are softened lines and folds, and the procedure is virtually undetectable.
What is different about RHA® facial fillers?
We’re glad you asked! Quite a few things are unique about this collection of facial fillers.
It’s the first and only FDA approved hyaluronic acid filler to treat dynamic wrinkles and folds.
The RHA® facial filler is safe and FDA approved for dynamic wrinkles and folds. When we say dynamic, we’re talking about lines in the skin that form because of facial movement and expression as we age.
These lines appear from smiling, squinting, frowning, lip puckering, and other common movements in the face. RHA® filler does an amazing job at filling in dynamic wrinkles and folds to create a natural, soft look to the treatment area.
It’s only available at select providers with exceptional reputations.
This isn’t your typical filler treatment, and you won’t find it offered at just any med spa. The creators of RHA® are selective about the practices they supply it to.
This is because they care not only about the quality of the product itself but also the quality and experience of the filler injector. Only medical spa practices with the best reputations and results have access to this product, including S. Thetics Med Spa of Lawrence! We have performed thousands of dermal filler injections and have been nationally recognized in publications such as Shape, Elle, and Harper’s Bazaar.
RHA® filler is more resilient to movement in the face.
Compared to other fillers on the market, RHA® is more adaptable to facial movements. Sometimes filler is stigmatized for making people’s facial expressions appear somewhat “frozen,” or it may be noticeable when the filler doesn’t move that well with a person’s facial expressions. Honestly, our expert injectors and patient results already defy this misconception with our advanced techniques.
That being said, RHA® has a unique formula of hyaluronic acid that closely mimics the HA we already have in our skin, so the filler is designed specifically to move right along with your smile 😊 This makes it a great tool to have in our injectors’ repertoire for offering comprehensive filler services to clients in Lawrence!
Swiss Innovation of RHA® Collection
The CEO and founder of the company Teoxane, Madame Valerie Taupin, co-created Juvéderm® over twenty years ago and since then has continued pioneering the advancement of filler treatments. Injectable wrinkle treatments have been around since the 90s, but there have been leaps and bounds in filler products since then!
In 2015, RHA® turned the tide in Europe by creating a formula specifically designed to treat dynamic wrinkles and maintain natural facial expressions. Before that, there had been no advancement in filler treatment products since 2008. Since then, RHA® dermal filler has made its debut in the US as a premier filler treatment for the face.
What areas does the RHA® Collection treat?
The possibilities of RHA® dermal fillers are endless! It can be used in many areas with dynamic lines and folds. Some of the most common treatment areas are discussed below.
Hollow eye tear troughs
Have you tried every expensive eye cream under the sun to no avail? Many of us suffer from dark circles and/or “tear troughs” which are lines that form where a tear naturally falls from the inner corner of your eye. Hyaluronic acid filler can help any volume loss in this area, as well as help lighten pigmentation from hollowness.
Nasolabial folds are also known as “smile lines” or “laugh lines” and are a byproduct of a happy life (similar to crow’s feet)! But just because you might love to smile doesn’t mean you enjoy the folds that result from doing so. We get it! 🙌 RHA® facial filler is exceptional at treating nasolabial folds around the mouth.
Lip and Lip lines
Lines around the lips can result from pouting the lips when smoking or using a straw, or even excess sun exposure. Loss of volume in the face as you age can increase the visibility of lip lines, and filler is a great way to treat it!
RHA® facial filler is great to pair with Botox® / Dysport®
Many clients choose to combine filler treatment in the forehead with Botox® / Dysport® in order to prevent lines from deepening in the future. Remember, the difference between Botox & filler is that filler adds volume to the face to help fill in lines, while treatments like Botox® use neurotoxins to relax muscles, soften lines, and prevent future lines from forming.
You can add volume to a hollow area with filler and then relax the muscles to prevent future lines from forming. A combination of RHA® filler and Botox® / Dysport® will target wrinkles and folds even better than one treatment on its own.

How long does RHA® facial filler last?
It depends on the unique skin features of the person, but factors that affect filler duration are a person’s medical history, age, skin type, and skin concerns.
These facial fillers are designed to be long lasting. They’re clinically proven to be effective and last for a duration up to 15 months. This long duration period makes this procedure very low maintenance! You can even come back sooner for a treatment that complements the RHA filler such as a HydraFacial.
How much does RHA® dermal filler cost?
The cost of RHA® filler in Lawrence can vary depending on your individual result goals and plan that your S. Thetics Med Spa provider creates for you. The amount and size of treatment areas, as well as the injector themselves will determine the price of RHA® dermal filler.
Schedule a complimentary in-person consultation with an aesthetic expert at S. Thetics Med Spa of Lawrence to discuss if RHA® dermal filler treatment is the best option for you. We’re here to walk you through all of your treatment procedures and options using an advanced skin analysis program called VISIA!
Who is a good candidate for RHA® filler?
We recommend this RHA® filler for adults 22 or older. Those that are new to filler or looking for subtle results are great candidates for it. This is a procedure where others will notice you’re looking fantastic, but can’t quite put their finger on what is different. It’ll be up to you to either shout it from the rooftops in excitement or keep it just between you and your S. Thetics Med Spaof Lawrence injector 😉
This treatment works best for dynamic wrinkles and folds, so it won’t address concerns for those who do not have those skin issues. Unlike Botox, this procedure is not used to prevent wrinkles from forming, but to treat dynamic wrinkles and folds already present in the skin.
